With 15 years of clinical experience gained from working in large teaching hospitals in Australia and the United Kingdom within the area of Women’s Health and Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation Physiotherapy.
Trisha’s approach to treating your condition is focused around the pelvis and how it integrates with the rest of your body system. A well aligned pelvic base, with a supportive core will bring you optimal function.
Traditionally, a Physiotherapist either chooses to become a ‘Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist’ - just treats the outside of the pelvis, or a ‘Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist’ - just treats the inside of the pelvis.
But due to the nature of this practice and the referrals we receives from medical specialist such as gynaecologist/urogynaecologist, Trisha aims to address the pelvis as a whole, which equates to more successful patient outcomes.  
In 2013 Trisha decided to formalise her knowledge in lumbo-pelvic –hip core strength training programs by becoming an APPI accredited Matwork Pilates Practitioner.
If needed, a pilates focused method of exercising will be integrated with your treatment program.
“Your posture during sitting, standing, walking, running and exercise will be thoroughly analysed. My aim is to assist you to achieve a more neutral and efficient alignment through Pilates and Physiotherapy treatment methods, to reduce pain and improve function.”  - Trisha

Prior to becoming a physiotherapist, Carrie pursued a career in the finance industry working for a global investment bank before deciding to change paths and graduating from the Master of Physiotherapy program at University of Sydney. During her masters program she specifically chose her clinic placement in her main area of interest - Women's Health and Paediatric physiotherapy.
She completed one of her clinical placements in Women's Health physiotherapy at Westmead Hospital, a large tertiary teaching hospital, where she was mentored to provide inpatient physiotherapy, assessing and managing patients with rectus abdominis diastasis, pelvic girdle pain and postnatal pelvic floor inpatient education.
In 2013, Carrie spent time in Vietnam volunteering at a paediatric hospital based in Hanoi. This gave her a good insight into the range of mild, moderate and severe developmental delays and disability physiotherapy can treat, and an appreciation of how our Australian early intervention framework is far superior.
Since graduating, Carrie has worked as a physiotherapist for a local rugby club, providing strapping and on field injury management services during games. Carrie has gained training in Pilates and also works part time as a Pilates instructor at another clinic.
Carrie has attended many courses related to Women's Health physiotherapy and is a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association, and Women's Health Institute Member.
